If you don’t see your distribution listed, then you can assume that I tried and was not successful using their tools. On most distributions you can examine the qcx by typing: I recommend you go to your access point’s setup and set it to broadcast it’s ssid, non-broadcasting stations are not exactly “hidden” from those who want to see them, so this kind of “security” measure is dubious at best.

Other bug subscribers Subscribe someone else. One more step is required to get your newly created “local” file into the startup system, type: Once lnux have your wireless and networking settings recorded and the source code and firmware tarballs in hand, if you are not already booted to Linux, go ahead and do so.

It took me some time and effort I had to put my cart into a computer with windows to download firmware from ftp: Wireless, ACX driver installation Do you actually have the firmware, which is included in linuux Next, we need to discover if your chosen distribution of Linux has already installed an older version of this driver on your system.

If you’ve already compiled some other kernel module, or an older version of the acx source code before on your current Linux installation, then your build environment is most likely fine, and outside of verifying the presence of the wireless tools, this step is not necessary, so you can skip ahead if you like.
